Blizzard Entertainment has been hyping up Diablo IV getting massive post-main game support, and now we know how big its battle pass is.
The Diablo IV battle pass will take players roughly 80 hours to complete all the extra content, news confirmed by associate game director Joe Piepiora.
Piepiora noted the game’s seasons will function muchlike Diablo III, saying they’re “not altogether wildly different from the format we had there that we liked so much.”
Completing seasonal objectives, quests, and of course slaying monsters will get players favor, which fills your battle pass progress bar. The game’s battle pass will have both free and premium/paid variants.
“The battle pass when you are figuring in completing the season journey alongside doing other content in the game, you’re looking at roughly 80 hours worth of time invested to complete the entirety of the battle pass,” Piepiora said to MMORPG.
Piepiora added, “Reaching Diablo IV’s level cap of 100 would take a “little longer than that based on how you play.”
As covered in our other report, seasons will also include new story content – with Blizzard planning to release new content and story bits every three months. It remains unclear if this new story content will become a permanent part of Diablo IV.
Large-scale updates, like expansions, are already being considered as they would be “persistent and available for all players at all times.”
